It’s a ‘Blues Brothers‘ reunion…of sorts.

Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi are getting the band back together. The original ‘Blues Brother’ and John Belushi’s brother still perform together as the be-suited duo and will soon appear together on CBS’s ‘The Defenders‘ as well.

Aykroyd is scheduled to guest star as a corrupt judge in a two-episode arc, which will film in January.

The series stars Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell as slick Las Vegas defense attorneys. No word yet on whether anyone will be breaking out into song.

CBS confirmed the guest spot via tweet after showrunner Kevin Kennedy hinted at the possible reunion in September.
